A few days ago we told you about the decently spec’ed and incredibly cheap smartphone from China, the Neo N003. The price for the phone was so low that was hard to believe that the leak could be true. Since the information came from a ‘source’ inside the company it should be classified as a rumor. Now Neo itself has not only confirmed the price for Neo N003 but also revealed it full specification. The handset will be launched in April and will be available in two versions – the Neo Youth which will cost 899 yuan, or around $145, and the Neo Premium model which will retail for 1,299 yuan, which is equivalent of $210.
Neo Youth vs. Neo Premium – Overview
Both N003 models, Youth and Premium, are very similar, the only difference between them is the amount of RAM and internal memory. The cheaper version will come with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of built-in storage, while the Premium model will offer 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. Other than that, both versions are identical and feature a 5-inch IPS multi-touch display with Full HD 1920 x 1080p resolution protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2, a 13 megapixel rear shooter and a 0.3 megapixel front-facing camera.
Under the hood of the Neo N003 you will find a Mediatek 1.2 Ghz MT6589 quad-core processor and the power will be delivered by an impressive stron 3000 mAh battery. Other features will include OTG HDMI, Yamaha speakers and noise reduction technology. The phones will ship with the latest version of the Android OS – 4.2 Jelly Bean.
